UPDATE, July 1: Fish Camp and T-Camp announced June 26 that both would go online-only for summer 2020. Read more at tx.ag/VirtualCamps2020.
Original story below:
The student leaders of Fish Camp on Friday announced a bit more detail about how the six-decade tradition will look this year: seven sessions July 19-Aug. 2, held on Texas A&M’s campus.
“All freshmen will be housed safely in dorms on campus at no additional cost,” the organization said on social media.
Typically, more than 6,000 freshmen attend Fish Camp each year; T-Camp and its fellow Aggie Transition Camps welcome 600-plus transfer and other new incoming students per year. The Association of Former Students provides support to all the camps.
Organizers had announced in May that fall 2020’s events would not be held at their usual locations (Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in Palestine for Fish Camp, and Trinity Pines Conference Center in Trinity for T-Camp).
Texas A&M recently announced dates for students to move into dorms for the fall semester (most will move in Aug. 8-18) and for Howdy Week, the semester’s traditional kickoff, Aug. 10-18. Classes start Aug. 19.
Fall 2020’s T-Camp will take place in three sessions: July 22-24, July 25-27 and July 28-30. Their website says two days of each session will be on campus and the third day held virtually. Registration opened June 15 at atc.tamu.edu. Watch their social media for updates: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook.
Registration opened at fishcamp.tamu.edu June 15 at 2:30 p.m. and is scheduled to close July 8; scholarship applications will also open, with a deadline of June 24, Fish Camp said. Registration fees will be $200. Watch their social media for updates: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook.
Session A: July 19-21
Session B: July 21-23
Session C: July 23-25
Session D: July 25-27
Session E: July 27-29
Session F: July 29-31
Session G: July 31-Aug. 2
